Winter’s the time I love to cook meals that take time in the oven like Osso Buco…….. imagine sitting by the fire all snug & warn occasionally looking out the window at the cold, foggy day outside.

If I was to win all of those glorious colours of the fabric & threads……. well it would be like stitching a rainbow = delightful stitching !

  29. I don’t have a particular season. It’s year round for me. It’s a great option for cold winter days, but the snow makes it so much more difficult to meet up with my group, and four additional pairs of eyes are always appreciated!

  30. I love to sew all seasons! I love to make summer dresses and Christmas decorations!

  31. Season?? there are seasons out there? I have no idea, but I suspect all seasons will be my fav.. winter for the warmth sewing brings, spring watching out the window at the world blooming

  32. Sewing Season for me is all year. I love to sew. We all seem to have a little more time in the Winter months when we don;t go out in the bad weather.

  33. My favorite season to sew is every season. If I have to pick, I would pick Fall. I love the crisp weather, and I’m starting Christmas presents.

  34. The only season that I don’t find conducive to quilting is spring. There’s just too much to do in the garden. But, the rest of the year you’ll find me in my sewing room.

  35. Oh I love Summer best….Mornings when the sun starts to shine in my sewing space and afternoons sitting on the porch watching my granddaughter and little doggies play while I hand sew a bit and savor a nice cup of coffee………

  36. I sew all year round but I do sew more in the Winter because I love to be in the garden in the Summer.

  45. winter when it’s cold outside and I can be cosy in my sewing room with Netflix and no guilt that I should be outside!

  46. Wow, great colours. I like sewing everytime, especially with such wonderful thread and fabrics.

  47. I love to sew in all seasons, but especially winter when it’s too cold to be outside anyway, so I feel better about spending the whole day at the sewing machine.

  48. I have summer off with my job so with lots of time on my hands it’s my favourite season to sew – Although I only got my sewing machine in June so this is the only season I’ve sewn!

  49. I sew all seasons when I have time (between 2 jobs and 3 kids), I sew for gifts, so before Christmas and before 1/8 March ( some specials days for women in Romania) I sew a lot.

  50. I haven’t been sewing that long, so I want to do it ALL the time. I dream of fabric and thread and spend hours looking at quilt patterns on the web and in magazines and books. I want to make everything!

  51. I sew all year around, but I prefer to sew in the fall and winter when it is cooler. Also, summer is so busy that it is harder to find time to sew. Thanks!

  55. I would have to say I like to sew in winter. Partly because it’s better weather to have a quilt on top of me, but also because there is less going on in the winter. In the summer my sewing has to compete with a lot of other things going on. Thanks for the chance to win such awesome prizes!

  56. I sew because I am addicted to fabric and the creative process. Aurafil is the best thread and those FQ packs look awesome as well. Thanks for the chance!

  57. I sew some most of the year but I really get serious about it in the fall because I usually want to get things finished for Christmas.

  58. All 5 seasons (you know quilting is the 5th season:)
    Anytime of year I get a lovely feeling just holding a quilted project on my lap and stitching, or sitting at my machine looking out a westward window to see the sunrise, sunglow and sunset.

  59. Stunning fabric collection and the thread is beautiful – I want it all!

  60. I enjoy sewing the most in the winter, seems like your stuck inside that time of year. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  61. I love cuddling up with a project on the couch when the weather is cold, or drizzly. This is an amazing giveaway. Thanks so much.

  62. I love to sew all year long, but I would say that the winter is my favorite time. It gets dark early and it is easier to settle into the quiet and sew!

  63. I prefer to quilt during the Winter and Spring, although Fall is a good time too. And, in Phoenix, what else am I supposed to do in Summer?

  64. Fall is my favorite season to sew although I find any season of the year to be a good time.

  65. I am not sure I have a season I like “best”, but I seem to get more done in the summer and winter, I am not sure why!

  66. I sew all year, whenever I get a bit of time. I think I am sewing more this summer than usual for some reason.

  67. Don’t have a favorite season, as there are always projects going. I don’t like to sew when it is HOT and humid. But otherwise……I’m sewing something!
    I would love to win!

  68. Anytime of year – there is always something going on and new fabrics to try. Thanks! notwendy gmail

  69. Well, in my book…there is NO season not to sew or quilt! I sew all year long…..and each season always adds something to the creative process. These fabrics are wonderful!!

  70. I love to sew all year round but do majority of it in the winter time because I tend to have more time. I love sewing Christmas projects. bluefin711(at)yahoo(dot)com.

  71. My favorite season to sew is the summer. I didn’t realize this unitl I saw I was always too rushed in the winter, the fall so much is going on and then the spring gets me raring to go again to bring me full circle and at 100% in the summer. I’ll be all wrapped up in a quilt with the A/C on lol

  72. I sew all year but mostly in fall, winter and spring. love the material and threads to match

  73. Winter is probably my favorite time to sew, as I have more time then, but I love to sew all year round. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  74. Love the threads and love the fabric bundles! I’m in! I don’t have an off season for sewing. I quilt all year long! That was easy.

  75. I love sewing mostly in the spring and fall so my fingers don’t get too cold but it’s not too hot to be covered in fabric!

  76. I saw the giveaway and yelled, “Shut the front door!!!!” Hubby looks at me and I sheepishly say, “Nevermind!” and then enter the fabulous giveaway! Thanks for the wonderful chance! I sew whenever I can, but a cold miserable day is my favorite day to sew!

  77. For me, every season is sewing season! But I probably do the most productive sewing in winter in the months following Christmas. Love the fabrics and threads!

  78. I love winter for the larger quilts. I hand quilt, so it is nice to have a lap warmer to work on. I love summer for the embroidery projects, they are nice and small and wasy to travel with. So really I love to sew in all seasons, I just adjust my projects.

  79. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway. I love to sew all the time, especially during the Summer. The days are longer so it means more time to sew plus it is too hot to go outside.

  80. I sew all year ’round! I don’t think I have a favorite. When I lived where we had four seasons, I loved sewing at the end of summer and the beginning of fall to make the new fall fashions.

  81. Winter is my favourite season to sew – I do sew all year round but much prefer to cooler weather, particularly for quilting.

  82. I love to make things for people so I guess my favourite sewing season is Winter in the run up to Christmas!

  83. All four seasons are my favorite. It is a constant in my daily life. Thank you for the opportunity.

  84. My favorite season to sew is probably late fall or late winter. So much easier to be inside when my garden is not calling my name!

  85. I love to sew whenever I have time. Winter is usually crazy busy in our house, so typically summer is when I have more ‘me’ time.

  86. all seasons lol, my sewing room is in a windowless basement so i never know the season lolol
    but spring is fun with all the new fabrics that come out and bright colors.

  87. I love to sew in all seasons! Though if I have to pick a favorite time, probably around the christmas season because I get to sew a lot 🙂

  88. I sew in any season! When it comes to season of life though… it was much easier to sew before I had children, but now that I have kids, I mostly sew children’s clothes and my sewing has improved 1000% from working through Oliver+S patterns! I was only commenting to my hubby the other day how sewing was much easier without kids, but my technique is better now because of them!

  89. This would be awesome! I love Valori’s use of color and Robert Kaufman fabrics are always terrific.

  90. I love to sew all year, but my favorite season is the fall, when I am making gifts.

  91. Summer in Arizona is great season to sew, because it is too hot to do anything else. thanks, kathy

  92. Every season is good to sew! There is something about sewing in the winter and being surrounded by warm fabrics when it is chilly outside.

  93. I don’t think I have a favorite season to sew. Since I juggle multiple crafts my sewing tends to be based on when I need something (a home item, a gift, a costume for my daughter, etcetera).

  94. Awesome giveaway! I can only sew when it is sunny, I can’t sew at night and not when it is cloudy, so as long as it is sunny, I will sew!

  95. I like to sew during every last one of the major seasons and mid seasons and pseudo seasons and brief seasons. I guess I am an any season sewer,

  96. Any season is sewing season. That being said, I most active in the fall. Probably because I love fall colors and, well, there’s Christmas coming 🙂

  97. My favorite time to sew is “Quilting season” lol. I sew year round, but spring and fall are my favorites. The colors of those seasons is inspirational. Thank you so much for the chance to win these beautiful threads and fabrics!!!!

  98. I mostly sew in the winter when I can’t be in the garden. I SHOULD sew in the summer/fall making Christmas presents, but I never seem to get there….. 🙂

  99. I sew all year round, but fall and winter seem to be the most productive. During Spring and summer there is just so much else going on. Thank you so much for the amazing giveaway! Love the fabric and thread.

  100. I love to sew year round. I guess summer is my favorite as I have more free time to devote to sewing.

  101. My favourite season(s) to sew are autumn, winter and spring. It gets far too hot here in Western Australia during the summer to sit under a quilt, or to do hand sewing and my hands get too hot.

    I would love to win these fabrics and threads – I’m starting to make quilts for all my family and I’ve still got a long way to go (problem of being the oldest of five, with everyone else having at least two children (so far)). All my inspiration is on Pinterst!

  102. My favorite season to sew during is summer. I am a teacher and do not work over the summer, so I have the most time for sewing 🙂

  103. My favorite season is Autumn. it’s the perfect time to sew as the temps allow the windows open and the colors and decorations are such inspiration. Even the smells of apple cider, pumpkin pie and autumn leaves make me want to sew cozy quilts.

  104. I sew all year long and in every season. Yay sewing love the fabric and thread yummy stuff!

  105. I like to sew in every season, but my favorite is early Autumn. Its a bit chilly and the turning of the leaves can provide such fun color inspiration.

  106. I sew the quilting portion in the winter as I live in Florida and it is quite warm but do some piecing in the summer and selection of patterns. this set is lovely and would make some nice items

  107. Summer. It’s too hot to go outside so I see…mostly dresses, tops and bags… Quilting is for winter. 🙂

  108. I’m a slowpoke, so if I didn’t quilt year ’round I’d never finish anything! Lucky for me quilting is great in every season, with lots of inspiration all around me: spring flowers poking through the snow, young birds begging their parents for food at my feeders in summer, brilliant autumn leaves like jewels (and that brilliant blue autumn sky), and winter snow accentuating the bare tree branches. 🙂 Sure would love to win this giveaway!

  109. Favorite season to sew: all of them! They each have their own benefit. Summer is great for sewing projects for fall and winter and winter is great for spring projects, you get the idea! : )
    What a great giveaway!!!

  110. I usually have more time to sew in the late fall and winter…though I am planning my next project all the time! I love Valori’s color palette!

  111. Please I want, I want, I need, I need. What a lovely prize and I really desire to have it. Please

  112. I’m a year round quilter, but I like to add some clothing construction for some variety.

  113. I sew to relax, and to create art. I think quilts are often overlooked and not considered art, but I love to create a little piece of art with each quilt I make!

  114. My favorite season to quilt is fall, with nice bright colours, or winter, again with the brights, It’s a real mood lifter when the weather is cold and it’s dreary outside.

  115. I like to sew in the fall because it’s cooler and I am usually making Christmas gifts. Thank you for the chance to win.

  116. Summer is the season, I love sewing for. It helps that summer weather lasts for 5 months here!

  117. My favorite season to sew is every season! I have my machines set up in front of a big window so that I can watch the seasons change and enjoy stitching even more!

  118. All seasons, but it is better in the winter – not as hot (even with air conditioning!)

  119. My favorite season to sew is the season when I have a lot of time for it. Which changes year to year.

  120. I love sewing every season–in summer when it’s too hot, in winter when it’s too cold… Fall when it’s getting dark and spring when it’s getting light.

  121. I like to sew in any season, but prefer fall and spring. I need to sew more in winter to keep my spirits up!

  122. Sewing in the winter is best for me, it’s usually dark and gloomy here so the bright fabrics cheer me up.

  123. I love to sew year round, in the hot summer days in the early morning, others seasons anytime of the day.

  124. My favorite season to sew is winter, but I sew year round and today is really my favorite day to sew!

  126. I love to sew all year, but Fall may be my favorite – all that nesting and preparing for winter.

  127. i love fall and winter best but in the summer i turn the air conditioner down so i can hand quilt and not overheat! quilting is an addiction for me, i have to be working on a quilt all year long. it keeps me sane!!

  128. Love every season to sew….there are endless possibilities with the colours in this collection!

  129. I love to sew in Fall – I feel inspired by the back to school season to maybe get some gifts made for Christmas or finish a quilt so I can start a new block of the month next year! Of course I quilt all the time, but fall seems to get me stitching faster:) Thanks for a great giveaway!

  130. I love to sew during every season…I just seem to have more time during the winter!

  131. I sew year round – more quilt making in the winter months than during warmer months, but I always have something I’m sewing, regardless of the season.

  132. I love to sew in the summer! But really, any season is the sewing season!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  133. I like to sew in the winter because it helps keep the doldrums away while the weather is dreary.

  134. I would sew all day and all night long in every season if my husband would let me. But for some reason he thinks I should cook and clean the house, isn’t it enough that I clean my sewing room up when one of the kids come home to visit. I love to sew anytime.This is a wonderful giveaway.

  135. What a BEAUTIFUL prize! I love it! I think my favorite season is late fall/early winter, in anticipation of completing projects in time for them to be Christmas gifts.

  136. Love, love, love these yummy colors! Each season is special ~ in the springtime, the earth awakens with such lovely flowers and new leaves on the trees; summertime brings longer daylight and home grown tomatoes ♥; fall’s crisp air is delicious with all of the beautiful autumn colors; winter is a good time to stay toasty warm inside. When all is said and done, spring is my favorite. It used to be summer, but the humidity has made me change my mind. 😉 LOL Thanks a bunch for the chance to win your awesome giveaway! ☺
